Noreena Hertz: How to use experts – and when not to

We make important decisions every day and we often rely on experts to help us decide. But, says economist Noreena Hertz, relying too much on experts can be limiting and even dangerous. She calls for us to start democratizing expertise to listen not only to “surgeons and CEOs, but also to shop staff.”

Globally recognised economist and tactition, bestselling author and academic, Professor Noreena Hertz‘s economic predictions over the last 15 years have proven to be ingenious.

She has had her internationally best-selling books, “The Silent Takeover” and “I.O.U.”, translated into 18 languages. “Eyes Wide Open: How to Make Smart Decisions in a Confusing World”, Noreena’s latest book, was published in September 2013 by HarperCollins and has already taken the commercial world by storm.

She has been named by The Observer as “one of the world’s leading thinkers” and by Vogue as “one of the world’s most inspiring women”. The Guardian too has gifted her with an illustrious title as “one of the top British Public Intellectuals”.

Advising a range of institutions, from multinational corporations and NGOs to politicians and start-up companies, Noreena sits on various charitable and corporate boards. She, having inspired Bono (co-founder of the project) with her writings, played a vital role in developing “(RED)”; a commercial concept that aims to raise money for people in Africa who suffer from AIDS.
